    Henry.  Can be made very slick.  (Send it to Slater)  And it's inexpensive. 

     

    THIS. ^^^^^.

     

    He does the 'Widder Soft Stroke' on the Henry .22 and also sets up one of the nicest trigger jobs you'll ever feel.

    He's a Top Notch Cowboy to deal with.   PLUS..... he is a dealer, so you can also order and buy your rifle directly from him.

     They ought to be expelled and no money given back!

     

    The only problem with this is that the money they paid was probably thru government 'Student Loans', in which the Prez has

    forgiven their payback.

  3. Well, for now, I don't think WE have much to worry about.   Neither of them know how to read.

    Funny how they know how to read...McDonalds,  Wendy's,  DQ, etc............

  4. Howdy Deacon.

     

    TW was searching thru his file cabinet over the weekend.   He and his Bunkhouse Boss keep their important papers in it

    such as Marriage License, Birth Certificate, his rental property info, and all the typical things most of us keep in our home

    filing cabinets.

     

    Anyhow, he noticed this folder that the Bunkhouse Boss labeled...... "Home Improvement".

     

    Soooooooo, TW was wonder what future plans she has to spend his money and change up their house.

    He opens the folder and finds a small book on ...'25 ways to get rid of your husband and enjoy life more'.

     

    TW couldn't figure out why that book was in a "Home Improvement" folder.    Go figure!

     

    Another fascinating true story cause ya just can't make this stuff up.  :lol:

    That part is fun, its when they give details

     

    Here's the details:     IF and whenever I hit under 4 seconds on my timer, I take the TIMER apart and clean the dust, dirt, lint, etc..... out of it.

    :lol:

     

    I called TW yesterday and ask..."whatcha doin?"

     

    TW says..... "Nothin.   And it looks like its gonna take me the rest of the day to finish it".

  6. PAT,

    I think if you buy a good CZ, you won't have any regrets.

     

    If you buy the Savage, You'll probably wish you got a CZ after your competition beats ya.

     

    The accuracy 'potential', smoothness of action, magazine, trigger, etc..... seem to favor the CZ.

     

    Just my thinking!

  7. Like CC stated, its up to the TO to make a final call on the 'P'.

     

    But, a spotter can let the TO know that he/she saw the 'P' and tell the TO what exactly caused the 'P'.

    Its still up to the TO of make the 'P' official.

     

    And also as CC stated, the ...."I think" should never precede a penalty call.

  8. Howdy Pat.

     

    I own a CZ 457.   Its in .17 HMR w/ their heavy barrel.   It shoots real good.

     

    Slaters owns the .22 and its very accurate.   As with most .22's, even my KIDD models, the ammo will be a BIG

    deciding factor in the accuracy you can get.

     

    Ironically, some of the cheaper, bulk stuff shoots darn good .... most of the time.

     

    As with most of the SAVAGE .22's, you get a lot of performance for your money.   You might even get one as accurate as the CZ,

    depending upon ammo you use.

    I also own the Savage.   Its the 'B' model, which has the better magazine.....in my opinion.

     

    Both have GREAT triggers.   My CZ has an aftermarket trigger that is super sweet.

    IF your competition rules allow semi auto .22's, you should also look at KIDD.   Their triggers are about as good as you can find.

    Good shooting with you today @Widder, SASS #59054! It’s always fun to watch you run that ‘97! If it will help get you to Alabama State I can offer you a bunk close to the range, no charge! If not, I’ll see you at the Reckoning!!

     

    BUT..... in the end, ya got me by 2.49 seconds.   If we only had another stage with 6 KD's..... :lol:

     

    Actually, it was great to shoot with you and Shootin Sharon today.  We both were clean and

    sub 100.   I'll take that anytime.

     

    I hope to be a tad more gamey at the Reckoning...... but I suppose you will be also.

     

    Congrats on your #1 today.   There were some fast competitors there that shot pretty good.

     

    Thanks for the offer but I won't be able to make Alabama St.

     

    See ya soon.

  10. Regretably, I won't be there.

    That club is one of the nicest clubs I've ever visited and during the winter months, TW and I

    were actually planning to be there for the Alabama State.    BUT, his arm injury (actually both

    of them) and my having to pay taxes a couple weeks back, hinders making the trip.

     

    Slater and I are planning to make the Regional again.   Great match, venue, folks, etc.....

    and we have a lot of fun down there.   If TW's arms improve, my guess is that he'll 

    try to make the Regional also.    

     

    One other item of importance:   TW has to notify the Alabama State Police approx 30 days

    prior to any visits he makes to Alabama.   I think it has something to do with warning all

    the lovely Moms and College girls..... :lol:

    A number of folks on this forum have years of experience; boxes of trophies and many a story of trainwreck - the scars of which we wear just as proudly as the buckles on our belts.

    These are the folks whose "opinions" I seek out when I am exploring improvement.

     

    And don't forget the REAL scars from cuts on thumbs and fingers from sharp edge 97 bolts.

     

    And calasis and sometimes a small blister from hard practice with pistols and SG.

     

    I now put a bandaid on my thumb and finger when I dry fire practice to help eliminate some cuts when I 'bump' the edge

    of the bolt.   The cuts don't hurt so much but its hard to practice with blood running down your hand (I take blood thinners).

    TW can breathe a sigh of relief. The speed demon of the Burt Bunch will be on the sidelines for this match. TW should have no problem beating up on an old two handed shooter. 

     

    Let him know WE ALL hope he has a complete and quick recovery.   

     

    As for TW, ya gotta remember that he's a little hindered hisowndangself with those 2 bad

    forearms.   He's still wearing splints a few hours a day and I doubt he'll do much practicing

    before the match.   I think his 'Chicken Feet' curse has backfired on him..... :lol:

     

    CAPT:  hope to see you at the Ocoee Rangers tomorrow.

    Remember, speed is important, but accuracy matters more. Focus on developing a smooth, controlled draw while maintaining pinpoint accuracy.

    Keep practicing, partner! And feel free to share any insights you discover along the way. This forum is a great place to learn from each other's experiences.

     

    "....... pinpoint accuracy".

     

    I don't know where you shoot, but "pinpoint accuracy" ain't exactly a big requirement when shooting at 18" square targets

    at 6 yards.

    It is a highly competitive match for sure, but well worth the trip if you have the testicular fortitude.

     

    Well stated...... especially from a man who TW don't even like.   :lol:

     The TO should not have stopped the shooter. The shooter should have gotten a reshoot. The only penalty that carries over is a safety. Good lord.

     

    AGREE.

     

    Surely with an appeal, somebody in the club should have know the correct rules governing this type situation.

     

    RESHOOT.   Misses do not carry over.

    AND........ TO needs to take a refresher course, assuming the TO has ever taken any courses.

    As usual, I agree with half of what you said.

    Widder is not right!

     

    You fellers 'quack' me up.   I'm glad you're both into 'Chickens' and not ducks.

     

    TW is correct in on thing he's told me......... Shooting Bull ain't good enough to shoot the TN State.  :D

  18. I know this post is 'stealing' the thread, but I gotta share this with the

    Wire Pards.

     

    For about 4 or 5 years now, TW and I will get together to sell a gun or swap a gun, etc.....

    and in the process, we usually meet somewhere we can have a good meal.

    Now, for all these times we've met,  TW would always order 3 beers.   Really.

    And A couple years back, I ask him.....'WHY do you always order 3 beers'?

     

    TW told me that when his 2 brothers moved out west (Texas and Montana), they

    agreed to have a beer for each other when they were able.  The 2 extra beers were 

    to honor his brothers..... and they in turn did the same when they were somewhere to

    get a drink.

     

    Anyhow, last week, TW and I met in Murfreesboro cause I was buying a nice varmint

    scope from him.   

    At the restaurant, TW only orders 2 beers.   Naturally, in my best somber voice, I

    expressed my condolences on what appeared to be that one of his brothers had

    passed away.

     

    TW says:   Oh No!   its nothing like that.  You see, my wife made me join a Baptist

    Church and now I can't have one for myself".     :lol:

     

    Another true story..... cause you just can't make this stuff up!

  19. I got Red Knee's address somewhere but I probably can't find it right now.

    I used it a couple times to send him some SNICKER candy bars for Christmas.

    He Loves SNICKER bars.

     

    If the TN State were to award a years supply of SNICKER bars to the SG Side Match speed winner,

     Red Knee would probably show up and beat everyone.

     

    CG:  tell Gut C and Skrap P to be at their best.   I plan to show no mercy and take no 

    prisoners..... :lol:

    The State record for 6 KD's is 4.24 seconds.   If they beat that, I'll give them a box of

    AA's Low Noise, Low Recoil. (25 round box).
